There are fears Aotearoa could end up with a 'motel generation' as whānau struggling to afford rents are bumped across emergency accommodation providers.
Latest figures show there are more than 4,000 children living in emergency accommodation - mainly motels - with more than 1,000 of those living there for up to a year.
Social service providers say we're teetering on the brink of a generation of kids raised in motels and the effects will be felt for generations to come.
